Nursing Home Abuse in Alaska
If you or a loved one has experienced verbal abuse, mental abuse, sexual abuse, neglect or malnourishment while living in an assisted-living facility, you may be the victim of nursing home abuse. Contact police immediately, and hire an Alaska nursing home abuse attorney. You may be entitled to compensation for the mistreatment you've endured.
How a Nursing Home Abuse Attorney Can Help You
Make no mistake: nursing home abuse (and all other forms of elder abuse) is a crime.
If you know an elder abuse victim, contact:
- Law enforcement in the town in which the abuse is occurring
- The state elder abuse hotlines
- The Office of the Long Term Care Ombudsman, if the victim lives in a nursing home
- An Alaska elder abuse attorney
While law enforcement officials will help investigate the crime and prosecute the abuser, a nursing home abuse lawyer can help pursue a personal injury lawsuit against the abuser. A civil lawsuit allows the victim to collect money to pay for medical treatment related to the abuse, for damaged or destroyed property, and for pain and suffering.
